The Lagos State University (LASU) has removed the Dean of Student Affairs, Prof. Tajudeen Olumoko, following allegations of certificate racketeering.

The allegations follow a report on Monday claiming that a syndicate was selling genuine LASU certificates for between N2m and N3m.

In response to the allegations, the university has appointed a senior lecturer in the Department of Political Science, Dr Abiodun Fatai-Abatan, as acting DSA.

The removal has been confirmed by a source at the university. “Yes, it is true, Olumoko has been removed, and Abatan has taken over as DSA. This happened yesterday (Tuesday),” the source said.

However, the university’s Coordinator for Information and Public Relations, Oluwayemisi Thomas-Onashile, has denied any knowledge of the removal, stating, “I can’t say if he has been removed or not. I am not yet in the office. So, I don’t know anything yet.”

The Lagos State House of Assembly had on Tuesday said it will invite the Commissioner for Tertiary Education, Mr. Tolani Akibu, the Vice-Chancellor of LASU, Prof. Ibiyemi Olatunji-Bello, the Senate of the tertiary institution and other top staff over the allegations of extortion and certificate racketeering levelled against the school.
